Red Iron Orchestra's self-titled debut EP is out now! Head over to iTunes to pick up the new record for $3.99 or head to the Elkion Store to order a physical copy for $5 (shipping included in the US).

Friend of Elkion and supremely talented artist, Mark Penxa, has finally unveiled his latest art exhibit, Stealing Signs II, over at his website.

If you're not familiar with Mark's work, then look no further than the album art for your favorite Few & Far Between and Heads Will Roll records. Not to mention countless t-shirt designs for both of these bands, skateboards for Girl Skateboards and snowboards for DC. Does the name Penxa ring a bell now? It should.

Hockey fan or not, make your way over to Mark's site and check out his latest exhibit. We recommend picking up one his amazing new pieces before they're gone (that will be very soon!). Don't risk living with the regret of missing out, get one (or a few) before they're gone and they start popping up on ebay for a small fortune.
